It's a fun challenge. And I'd rather eat a nice 5lb pike or walleye anyway

Lol.


Just found out the ontario record is 31", and 15.1 lbs.


This fish was 100 percent longer than 32".


Oh well!

Get a digital Rapala Scale. $12 bucks. Cheap Fun



Musky are generally measured via length. Hence, I have a bump board in the boat. Length and girth makes a pretty good estimate of weight based on the charts.

I wasn't sure how big bowfin got, hence measuring it in any way, weight or length never crossed my mind.

We estimate 33-34 inches
